When I was a little girl I was afraid to tell people my name because they couldn’t pronounce it, but today I’ll proudly shout it from the rooftops.
I’m Dahlia, named for a flower, and dare I say Scare Your Soul has helped me bloom. A roll-your-eyes reference perhaps but true none the less.
For the last 15+ years I’ve been helping non-profits and cause-driven start-ups brand and market themselves to connect with their audiences in personal and powerful ways. I’ve worked with some pretty outstanding orgs but this one is by far one of my favorites.
Participating in Scare Your Soul encouraged me not to simply look at myself, but to really see myself — it made me dig deep to discover what was holding me back from living my life more fully. And, just the idea of participating in a challenge like this inspired me to make small changes and take more risks. I’m not really shouting my name from rooftops but I am living my day to day life more boldly and that feels fantastic.
Hope you participate too and find freedom within yourself to be yourself, whatever that means to you.
The world is a more beautiful place because you are in it!
